“For those contemplating going to other parties, there is no place like home. Let them stay in their house. As the state party chairman, I will continue to appeal to them to stay. If you see what is going in here today, you will see the need to unify our people. Our chances in the 2023 election are very bright and that is why our primaries were very tense.”
